The Invicta Dynamos are saddened that the season has come to a premature end however we are fully supportive of the league’s decision to prioritise the health and safety of all the players, staff and supporters in UK hockey.
We would like to thank our players and volunteers for their invaluable efforts throughout the 2019/20 campaign. We would also like to thank our fantastic supporters who have shown great dedication to the team both home and away.
The next few months are set to be challenging and at times like this it is important we prioritise the wellbeing of ourselves and each other. Your Invicta Dynamos will return to the ice on the other side of this outbreak and we look forward to reuniting as a family again as soon as possible. In the meantime take great care of yourselves and those around you.
